I used to be really angry about that.”
“I was told he has been given dates, so you have to work around them, but I was never asked like that. She shared, “I want to keep acting for next 40 years. When asked if she is a feminist, she explained, “I’m a feminist I am not anti-men. Vidya shared, “The film industry has been really nice to me. In the wake of recent sexual misconduct claims made against the big names of Hollywood, Bollywood actor Vidya Balan has revealed that Bollywood can be really sexist too. I don’t have specific goals, I just want to work.”

The actor will be next seen in Suresh Triveni’s Tumhari Sulu. “I was lucky I got into the business with a movie like Parineeta, no one questioned the rules I set for myself. The male actor would always get a bigger van, a bigger hotel. The flick is slated to release on November 17. The movie is about a competent woman who chances upon the opportunity of becoming an RJ and grabs it with both hands. I’m quite head-strong. Nothing has changed since I first decided to be an actor. In the initial phase of my career, I did face a fair amount of sexism. There is a huge difference between them. While being present at the launch of a business magazine, the Tumhari Sulu actor shared that the film industry can be really sexist and she did face a fair amount of sexism in the initial phase of her career. You got to look glamorous. But I think it can really be sexist. People would always say like, ‘do you need to listen to story?” she said. The actor shared that she has been very lucky to have stepped into the industry with a movie like Parineeta, as no one questioned the set of rules she set for herself. I believe I have the equal right to breathe, live and lead my life as a man does.”
She also shared that her dream is to act for next 40 years as she enjoys the work she does. This is what I enjoy doing. I have been told that a female actor’s life is not much, so you have to look younger. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App
